Grimm's Snow White (2012)
Take it as an Adventure/Fantasy/COMEDY and you'll love it!
I was first attracted to this film because of Eliza Bennet. She played the role of Meggie in Inkspell, and did a fantastic job in this film playing Snow White. Sure, she doesn't have raven black hair, but it's nice to mix things up a bit.
I think the key to enjoying this film is to remember that it IS a low- budget, independent film. It isn't backed by a huge studio, it doesn't have brilliant CGI. In fact, the CGI is pretty laughable. But that's the key: laughter. Laugh at the corny parts; it makes the movie more enjoyable. Yes the elves have visibly prosthetic ears. Yes the 'dogs' are bigger than people and seem to be the product of some crazy genetic experiment. And yes, there are a LOT of decapitations. (It got to be a running joke while my family watched the film, we'd yell out 'DECAPITATION!' whenever one occurred, probably at least 6 times during the movie xD)
The acting is actually VERY well done. I'm not sure why other reviews diss the cast, because they all portray their roles perfectly IMHO. The Queen, Snow White, and the Prince are exceptional.
The cinematography is okay, not great, not bad. The costumes are fine, although most characters always wear the same outfit. (Hey, maybe royalty didn't change very often back then?)
The movie climaxes in a hilarious yet deadly combat between the two sides. Black elf's swing in on vines like Tarzan and his monkey friends. Snow White mostly stands around observing the fight. (Weirdo...maybe she has a fetish?)
And the crown jewel of comedy is when the Queen gets beheaded. OMG WE COULD NOT STOP LAUGHING! The camera focuses in on the severed head which is clearly a plastic mannequin face and LOOKS NOTHING LIKE THE QUEEN. In fact, it kinda looks like a dude. IDK why they chose to focus on that, since it's obviously fake, but boy is it hilarious.
So, in short, accept it, laugh at it, cry at it (I'll admit, the final kiss between Snow and the Prince gets to me.)
